What Inspires Your Interior Decorating?

Open House: What's Your Inspiration Piece?

My first real piece of art was (and still is) a prized possession, and because it also cost me a pretty penny, it was my inspiration for decorating every room in my first apartment. I've since moved on to other pieces that have sparked me to redecorate my pad, but my interest is always piqued by a single item. Some folks still find comfort in a whole inspiration board, but there is often just one thing that makes you smile and jump-starts the entire process.
